I think the seat's pretty nice. Try wearing full leathers. They really are a lot more comfortable.

The stock seat works well on the track. Guess they are trying to guide you somewhere?

You mean taking a SS to the track

NO you are lying

Dont know if you wear riding pants or not but they do help alot. I wear the Astars textile type and those are a big help so I can only imagine leathers.

I actually like the seat vs. a softer plush one that you sink into and have to lift yourself off of everytime you want to hang off a bit. Compared to spending hours in a bicycle seat, the Honda seat is easy.

Because the dude over at Mother Honda's Seat R&D Department is a wood-ass.

Seriously, I agree. Honda sportbike seats suck ass IMO. They need to hire Suzuki's guy, no kidding.

I agree. One of the best mods I made. I could only stand riding on the stock seat for about 30 minutes. I just had a 2.5 bike ride over the weekend. The seat made the differance.

Sargent!!!

Re: Honda Seat .......

as I tell everyone its not a seat its a peice of plywood. I just move around on mine and its ok. I like the looks and can't bring myself to spend a few hundred on a corbin or seargant. Plus it looks kinda like a might loose precious leg distance to the ground.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

well I wear boats and they of course have a taller sole than sneakers (which I wouldn't wear anyway) and I have the bike lowered 3 inches in back so I just need some miracle cure for inseam challenged.

Re: Honda Seat .......

I cant stand the seat. After about 45 minutes I cannot feel my butt. I ordered a sarget seat that should be here in a few days. I got it off ebay for a good price.
